With this, "Stay" passed the one million downloads-sold barrier, becoming Rihanna's twenty-seventh title (including featured appearances) to reach the sales milestone.
For the issue dated April 6, "Stay" ascended to number six on the Radio Songs chart, marking Rihanna's twenty-second top ten on the chart.
Rihanna also makes a plea to her lover, singing "'Round and around and around and around we go/ Now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know/ Not really sure how to feel about it/ Something in the way you move/ Makes me feel like I can't live without you/ it takes me all the way/ I want you to stay." "Stay" received favorable reviews from music critics.
Jon Dolan for Rolling Stone was complimentary of Rihanna's execution of the song, writing that she performs it "within an inch of its life" and "pleads at the piano." Smokey Fontaine for The Huffington Post also praised "Stay", placing emphasis on Rihanna's vocal performance.
After another listen, he understood that the song is very important to him, "The track had become so special to me as well, and knowing what the track means to me and what I think it means to her too." Shortly after Rihanna's management took over the song, Ekko met her in Los Angeles where she told him she already sang the vocals, about which he reacted positively.
Rihanna's and Ekko's vocals were recorded at two recording locations by three different people: Mike Gaydusek at Nightbird Studios and Marcos Tovar and Kuk Harrel at Westlake Recording Studios, both in Los Angeles.
It subsequently debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 57, rocketing to number three the week after, following the chart's new policy that allowed You Tube streaming to count towards the single's chart performance.
The following week it climbed to number 25 and in its third week to a new peak of 16.According to Ekko, the production of the album was massive, "Their pace is insane.They had the studios we were working in booked out for three months, on a cycle.It was like nothing I had ever experienced before." "Stay" was written and produced by Parker, Ekko and Elof Loelv.Initially, when they wrote the song, Ekko didn't like it because of its vulnerability; however, collaborators convinced him to listen to "Stay" again.
The track was included on the set list of the majority of her 777 Tour promotional tour dates, in support of the album, while it was included on Rihanna's fifth headlining tour, the "Diamonds World Tour" in the encore and the opening song of her seventh headlining tour, the "Anti World Tour". That's probably why I wound up writing "Stay" in the first place.
